I need to write more for this part... One of the reasons I sold the M3 was because it had too much power as a DD, and it was heavy and would be expensive to run as a track car.

I am having a lot of difficulties regarding why people want 100s of hp for a DD... What is the point? Get a muscle car if you're (not you in particular) obsessed with power.

To me, the point of the M3 was having a very well balanced car with a Ferrari like engine. And the turbo kills that...
